Cathy Phares
President 2023

Cathy has been immersed in art since a young child. Her father was a well-known photographer who also painted, so Cathy painted and drew alongside her father, visiting art galleries and museums. She claims no particular style as she doesn’t want to feel
constricted to only one. There’s too much fun in exploring.
